What is DISCADE?
DISCADE is the Academic System of the National University of Agriculture, commissioned to propose and execute policies aimed at the development of an institutional culture, with actions that manage and promote human formation as a fundamental axis, adapting the regulations for the various cultural, artistic and sports programs and projects within and outside the university community.
Programs, projects and lines of study coordinated by DISCADE
The different programs, projects and lines of study generated by DISCADE will be coordinated with the culture, arts and sports unit of the Vice Rector's Office for Student Life, as well as the cultural units of the faculties and other units related to these areas that are created in the different regional centers nationwide. This work is aimed at energizing cultural and social activity within the university community, while strengthening ties with national and regional institutions to promote cultural outreach activities.
Recreational programs in arts and sports
The objective of these programs is to carry out general and inclusive activities for individual students, as well as for academic units and paracademic training aimed at students as a priority, the university community and the national community.
